NINDS encourages applications for the jointly-sponsored Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award Predoctoral Training Program in the Neurosciences.  This announcement is made together with 9 other NIH components.

The aim of this program is to encourage and support broad, early-stage training in the neurosciences by offering institutions a single, comprehensive training grant. The program supports the early years of graduate training, i.e., the first and second years, typically before full-time thesis research begins. Trainees are expected to be participants in a formal predoctoral curriculum offering broad and fundamental training in the neurosciences.

Potential applicants should contact Dr. Stephen Korn, Director of Training and Career Development, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-4188; email:  korns@ninds.nih.gov.  For a more detailed description of this announcement, visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-08-101.html.
